If those hapless videographers from “The Blair Witch Project” knew about The Cam Caddie, they’d still be doomed, but we’d all be less queasy.
This light-as-air handheld stabilizer uses the weight of your camera to cleanse your DSLR vids of jerks and jolts.
The design’s awesomely simple: a curved handle mounts your camera via the tripod thread. Nothing’s left but smooth HD video, just like the pros shoot.
Better yet, it won’t break the bank. Take that, witches.
